~ DIY Tutorials ~ Rice Krispie Pops "Little Pirates"

Here are the instructions on how to make these cute little pirates pops: 

To make the pops you'll need:
Round Cookie Cutter 
Candy wooden sticks
Parchment Paper
Icing decorating tubes {red, white and black}
Treat bags and curling ribbon to wrap pops  

50 ml
1/4 cup
margarine or butter
250 g
1 pkg
(about 40) regular marshmallows or 5 cups miniature
2 ml
1/2 tsp
vanilla extract (optional)
1.5 L
6 cups
  1. Melt margarine in large saucepan over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
  2. Stir in vanilla. Stir in RICE KRISPIES cereal until well coated.
  3. Using lightly buttered spatula, press into buttered round cookie cutter over parchment paper.
  4. Wait a few minutes and insert Candy sticks before they dry completely
  5. Let dry and decorate with Icing decorating tubes {Usually available in the baking section of the supermarkets or specialty store like bulk candy or Michaels}, let dry completely at least 6 hours before wrapping.

You can also make your own royal icing with the mix like shown in the picture above but then you'll need colouring gels, piping bags and tips.

 Now you can use any cookie cutter to make any rice krispie pops to match your party theme. 

Really easy and yummy!

~ Birthday Party ~ Pirates!! 1st birthday party and Pirate pops Tutorial

 I've been meaning to post these pictures for a while. Ivano turned one in October and his mom and I thought a Pirate Party was the perfect theme to celebrate his birthday. 

I had so much fun planning all the details of this party and I love how everything turned out!

 Ivano loves balloons and we had tons of them!

 We wanted to have a "cute" rather than "scary" pirate theme,
that's why we chose the color palette to be sky blue, white and red.  

I made the cupcakes and designed the cupcake toppers to match the decor.


I made the most adorable rice krispie pops in the shape of little pirate faces
{Tutorial here}

The tables were decorated with tons of chocolate gold coins, pirate eyepatches,
 gold necklaces and gold wrapped Hershey kisses {pretend gems}.

 I also made the water bottle labels to match the pirate party theme.

We wrapped the party favors in white and red stripes paper and decorated with a raffia bow and made to match Thank you tags.  

 All of the pirate party supplies were purchased at the party packagers here in Canada.
 Pirate party supplies can be also purchased online at Birthday express.
